By Paulo ( - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the Volume 7 of the famous Course of Theoretical Physics by L. D. Landau and E. M. Lifshitz. All serious students of theoretical physics must possess the ten volumes of this excellent Course, which cover in detail and rigour practically all the branches of theoretical physics. The Volume 7 treats the subject of the mechanics of deformable bodies. Unlike the major part of other similar books, the Volume 7 is concise and very elegant, and is at the same time detailed in the exposition of the basic elasticity theory. Moreover, it contains certain topics not usually found in other similar books, such as the theory of thermal conduction and viscosity of solids, and a detailed exposition of the fundamentals of the mechanics of liquid crystals. A highly recommended book!

Fortunately... not Timoshenko 30 Oct. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Timoshenko's book is a collection of exercises. Landau's book is a collection of ideas.

Bad print for an otherwise good textbook. 20 Oct. 1999
By D. Stelitano ( - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book is a classic in the field; it's well written and clear, with interesting problems. However, the Publisher chose very tiny fonts, sometimes lacking in toner. Overall they did a terrible print, hard to read!

Kindle version full of errors!! 4 Mar. 2013
By Fernando Curiel Villasana - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very disappointed, not with the text but with the multiple errors in the characters, apparently in making the text compatible the editor mixed up the notation in almost every page! Will ask for a return and wait for the printed version...
En quoi les maths permettent-elles de comprendre la physique ? 27 Oct. 2012
By CL14 - Published on
Format: Paperback
Il n'est pas nécessaire de présenter la collection MIR ni ses auteurs qui, il y a 60 ans, ont tenté de créer une encyclopédie de physique et de mathématiques très bon marché, visant l'excellence sans compromis démagogique ni pédagogique : c'est dire à quel point les temps ont changé . Dans ce qui était l'union soviétique, cette entreprise a conduit à mettre dans les mains de nombreux étudiants dont j'étais, des livres sur des sujets variés sans comparaison avec la littérature scientifique ni anglosaxonne ni française. Bien sûr il y avait dans la collection MIR quelques insuffisances mais beaucoup de ces livres alliaient l'orignalité de la démarche avec la pertinence des propos. Il a parfois été reproché l'abondance des mathématiques mais c'est en cela même que ces livres sont précieux. En effet il faut quelques efforts pour comprendre. L'elasticité est un petit bijou qui malheureusement avait disparu , on ne peut qu'encourager les éditeurs à rééditer toute la collection.
